My point in my last article was to show that Paran and Mecca are not the same area and I believe based on the Scripture I used, I did that. I will also prove that Bakkah (Becca) and Mecca are not the same places either. Obviously, I cannot go over all the factors involved in proving these things, but I do want to show some of the main points that I believe are pertinent to show the history of Mecca and whether or not Abraham was involved there at all.
Since Daniel was thinking in terms of years, Gabriel’s words to him were almost a play on words. In effect, Gabriel was saying, “Daniel, it’s not seventy years, but seventy sevens of years.” The Hebrew word shābûá in the text literally means “sevens” or more precisely, “a period of sevens.” Had the Hebrew word meant “weeks,” (as translated) the text in the original language would have been shavuot.
